Tracking the Tainted Trailer – sighted in Dallas and Broken Arrow

$10,000 reward still offered for information leading to the arrest of the persons who stole the meat-filled trailer. 

Quote of the day:

"The bottom line is, it’s never safe to buy meat on the street."

Susan Tallant and the Fort Worth Star-Ledger is on the trail of the E. coli-tainted trailer stolen from American Fresh Foods parking lot a few days ago.  According to the report, “the meat was in a trailer, not hitched to a tractor, on the parking lot of American Fresh Foods, 1301 Northpark Drive, just northeast of downtown off Samuels Avenue…. The thief or thieves must have brought a tractor to haul off the trailer, officials said.”

The meat-filled refrigerated trailer is a white 2000 Great Dane, Maine license plate number 1925071, trailer number Q061232.  The company’s logo and "XTRA LEASE" are on the side of the trailer.

If you have any information on the location of the trailer or the meat, please call the Fort Worth Police Department Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-817-469-8477 or the American Fresh Foods consumer hotline at 1-800-724-1136.  Also, if you have any information that leads to the arrest of these “hamburglers,” please call me on my Bat Phone – 1-206-794-5043.
